I will go with ‘D’
Statement 1: Either P’s faction or T’s faction will win.
Statement 2: If P’ faction wins => nation will suffer economically.
Statement 3: If T’ faction wins => nation will suffer militarily.

A – False, because one of the them has to win and when one of them wins the nation will either suffer economically or militarily.
B – Not necessarily true, Statement 3 does not mention this
C – False, both can happen
E – False. From Statement 1

D for me. b/w B and D, D is best because it is the infamous 'indisputable answer choice' typical of ETS.
